Just by pure statistics, it must happen all the time, at least for Uber’s and Lyfts that are basically regular cars. 

I wonder if with taxis they get pulled over more or less as they’re marked and the officers would know.

    In 38 yrs of driving I got 1 speeding ticket 3.5 yrs ago. In the 2 yrs I have been driving for Uber and Lyft I've been pulled over 4X with passengers. One was my passengers fault telling me GPS was wrong to go straight. Got out of turning lane then she decided she was wrong. Four cops were sitting at intersection. I knew not to do anything wrong. I put my signal on there was no traffic & pulled back in turning lane. Back end of my car sticking out slightly over line. If I pulled up would've went into intersection. Got pulled over no ticket. Had turned down my headlights waiting on riders as I was blinded people who were outside the bar. Forgot to turn them back up. No ticket cop was actually very nice. Got pulled over in Princeton NJ cop was more interested in questioning my passenger. Definately the strangest traffic stop. Never did find out why I got pulled over. No ticket. Pulled over again Princeton NJ failure to pull in left lane as a cop had someone pulled over on ...

Pulled over again Princeton NJ failure to pull in left lane as a cop had someone pulled over on the shoulder. However there was traffic in those lanes so I slowed down to 25 in a 55.  That is legal. No ticket. My riders didnt complain we got a good laugh and off we went. I did receive a tip on all 4 rides. I drive with cruise control on and I obey the laws. When I did get pulled over its for minor things that had Township cops & had no reason to ticket me. No laws were broken. The one stop with the lights was valid. It was embarassing but I think my riders were just happy it was me behind the wheel and not them:) Uber and Lyft drivers are on the road much more than the average person bound to get pulled over.

    Well, yes, but I was the driver.  Does that count? Haha. 

    And it wasn’t for speeding, it was for being at the airport without the proper stickers displayed. Dumb.

    No. Been on hundreds of rides in NYC yellow cabs that go buzzing down the roads, and not once was my driver pulled over. They must be invincible.
